Do you feel like breathing badly? Know that stress is probably the culprit.

Why can breathing, so natural, sometimes become a problem?

If you don’t have a respiratory condition, don’t smoke and still feel like breathing badly, stress is surely the culprit. It directly affects your breathing, and the situation can quickly worsen in the face of emotional upheaval. With stress, the breathing becomes thoracic (high) and incomplete and the buried emotions contract the diaphragm. When this lasts over time, it is not uncommon for palpitations, chest pain or a feeling of tightness to also appear.

Indeed, when we breathe badly, the organism presents the signs of a state of alert: the heart rate and the blood pressure go up, the digestion slows down … Imagine the consequences of all this for months and years!
